Tequila Cabo Wabo Blanco NOM 1467. I purchased this bottle for 42.00 at the local ABC store. Aroma-nose isn't bad, high spicey, sweet and earthy. A clean slight meds/hospital element to it. First taste is harsh agave, high olive, cloves and hot alcohol. Body is medium to syrupy. Raw and sweet green, this tequilas balance is on the bold side. Moderate to high bitterness with alcohol burn upon swallowing but strangely little to no numbing or tingle to the finish. Overall impression in taste and smell is an overwelming prolonged alcoholness with an unpleasent bitter aftertaste. Everthing about it is on the weak/mild side except the alcohol. I'm sure this blanco appeals to many, and I am a big fan of Sammy Hagar, but when comparing it side by side with better blancos it comes up sorely lacking in many ways. Of all the blancos I own I like this one the least. Presentation is nice but the cork separated from the top when I originally tried to open it.
Cabo Wabo Silver - NOM 1467 - Tasted 2/14/07. With a clear color, Cabo Wabo Silver has intense aromas of earthy and floral scents. Less apparent are moderate spice and mild smoke and fruit aromas. Upon initial taste, the tequila has a thin mouth feel and is soft and mellow on the tip of the tongue. Moderate flavors of agave and earth accents are followed by mild floral, fruit, and spice flavors. The finish consists of almost no alcohol intensity and a short duration of flavor. I rate this tequila at the ?B? range.
